Product Description

Product Description

When you awake without memories, without a past…can you recreate yourself through your dreams?

Barren and shamed, Rai has no memory when she's placed with an adoptive family, the Durmah Sept. Recurring nightmares pull her into another world--giving glimpses of a past she never recalls while awake. Rai fears for her new family's safety in light of her mysterious past and newfound, bizarre abilities. Driven by a curiosity Rai can't deny, she tempts fate--but at what price?

A distant human colony races to prove themselves before the powerful Hegemonic races declare their attempt a failure. Although they've been on Az'Unda for a little over 600 years and have used aggressive breeding practices, a horrible plague has reduced their life spans, left many women sterile, and saddled them with beasts known only as Terrors. Little do they know they are about to face their greatest threat from one of their own--causing attentions to focus on the unlikely Durmah Sept.

The Depths of Memory Trilogy is a sci-fi / dark fantasy series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully engaging and original sci-fi/fantasy 16 Aug 2013
By Steven Montano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 out of 5 stars. Wow.

Allow me to elaborate.

Candice has crafted a well-thought out, very detailed sci-fi dystopia in "The Dream Sifter". Society has been ravaged by disease, and in many ways has fallen back to older ways. Family "Septs" operate business in the wild, aided and protected by the enigmatic Guardians.

Rai awakens to this world with amnesia, not recalling anything about her past, but terrible nightmares and unique abilities have her rightfully thinking she's more than she seems, and before long she's searching for clues to her identity while trying to fit in with her new Sept.

Candice does a wonderful job unfolding both the story and the setting in a slow and deliberate pace. Nothing is rushed, and while some readers may grow restless in the early goings I found the steady and even rhythm of the novel quite refreshing. Rai is a wonderfully well-rounded character (especially considering how little she knows about herself), and I loved how Candice allowed slow pieces of the puzzle to her identity to fall into place. Other characters (Ponar, Jesse, Bauleel, Graeber) are similarly well developed.

But what really blew me away was the obvious care and detail placed into the world of Az'unda. This place lives and breathes, and Candice wraps elements of post-apocalyptic dystopian sci-fi and high fantasy together in a world C.S. Friedman would be proud of.

And while stories of this type traditionally build up to an explosive climax, I very much enjoyed the fact that Candice shows you can have a satisfying conclusion without having to resort to fist-fights and explosions. (Though, rest assured, there's plenty of action peppered throughout the story. Watch out for those Iron Wolves.)

This is refreshing, thought-provoking and engaging sci-fi. And while Candice was nice enough to provide me with an advanced copy (because she's awesome), I can say with 100% honesty that I'm very much looking forward to the sequel in what promises to be a terrific series.
